Subject: First Dead Concert
I get there and Bob says Jerry can't be here tonight. I was new to the Dead and IF it was a joke and Jerry appeared I do not remember and could not tell him from anyone else if he came on as a surprise I would think it was a dead head thing. You tell me. I can't hear Jerry in two of the songs, but I am not a Dead Head. I like a few songs here and there...
Subject: 2nd set
Subject: Incredible Shakedown!
Overall a very decent show, with Shakedown and Terrapin being clear highlights at least for me.
Playin>Drums>Space was also a lot of fun.
Subject: My First Show
Subject: I don't know....
Subject: After a blazing show in Indy, this Madison is a mighty disappointment.
Unfortunately, this 'shakes' has a bit of mud on its heel preventing it from fully taking flight. It's sad when a crowd feels compelled to clap even on a jam like this one that goes Nowhere. "Samson" is halfway decent. Not a must hear, but harmlessly floats in and out of your headspace. One of the prettier, lilting versions of "From the Heart of Me" follows. "Terrapin" is pleasingly standard and closes strongly which ties into an only decent (song) "Playin." The time alloted for a soul-searching jam is generous, but the music fails to stick despite an 'Eyes' tease halfway through. "Drums" is notable for its late 'procession' in a distant jungle imagery. "Space" is too innocuous for my liking. "Iko," and this show, is becoming awfully stiff. "Black" trudges as if it was cement. Surprisingly, after the egg that most of this set was, "Around" picks up some steam, and at least leaves us with a smile.
Our encore is your standard "US Blues."
A 2 1/4 gig... Not impressive
